PokÚdex 3D to be discontinued (in Japan)
Posted 24 May 2012 - 01:05 PM
Pokédex 3D Pro should take its place on July 14th, 2012.
We've asked my local Nintendo PR, but they didn't know anything about this.
But this is exactly, what I found in the Latest News section on the eShop:
What do you think about that?
Should the Pokédex 3D continue to be 'sold', as a 'no-budget' version?
Or is it worth to let the Pro version replace the free one?

(highlight done by me)
Pokédex 3D Pro will be available for purchase via download from the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS.
My guess - it will be $15 when it comes out (inline with all the other Nintendo released apps)
They're also releasing that AR game where you can capture pokemon, also for purchase. And I reckon it will be $15 too.

I know it'll cost ¥ 1500 in Japan.
But as far as I know, every Japanese price in the eShop, have been lazily converted to Euro's, but not vice versa.
For example: If something costs ¥ 500 in the Japanese eShop, it costs € 5,- in the European eShop.
Here comes the trick: Credit Cards are converted correctly, so when I have € 20,-, I charge ¥ 1000, I'll have € 9,68 left.

Fair enough, I'm not miffed by that. I am however slightly inconvenienced by the fact that the current firmware puts a placeholder pokedex icon on the homescreen that would normally link the user to a free download - that as mentioned above no longer exists. Even going into the data management menu doesn't seem to yield results re: removing it. It simply doesn't exist according to the console.
I'm not about to fork out additional money to buy the pro pokedex again to see if it gets removed after doing so, but seeing as the headers are different, and the pro and free pokedex can coexist on the same system, I think it's a safe bet to say that unless Nintendo release a relevant patch, we're stuck with a null icon.
(Note: I transferred data from an ambassador 3DS to a Zelda CE 3DS to a 3DS XL, formatted, then transferred the data from a DSi XL to my Zelda 3DS system, as I lost 4 Swords in the transfer process. This may have affected the results)
